ANTH 101 - Introduction to Cultural Anthropology (3 Credits)

Prerequisite: None
Introduction to Cultural Anthropology explores fundamental questions about what it means to be human through a comparative study of different cultures.  Anthropology seeks to understand how culture both shapes societies, from the smallest island in the South Pacific to the largest Asian metropolis, and affects the way institutions work, from scientific laboratories to Christian mega-churches. It provides a framework for analyzing diverse facets of human experience such as gender, ethnicity, language, politics, economics, and art.
